Google Google has barely released Chrome 1.0, but the company is already hard at work on version 2.0 of its web browser. They released a pre-beta for Chrome 2.0, which comes with a lot of new features, including ones that should've already been in Chrome 1.0. In addition, it seems as if the Mac and Linux versions of Chrome are getting closer.

It's quite sad.. Google designed the browser on Windows for Windows.

Due to many of their design choices, the Chrome experience on Windows/Mac and Linux will undoubtedly be different.

There is a high chance of probability that they'll make their Linux port very difficult to run under BSD.

For now.. all Mac/Linux related chromium development will be very minimal, just enough to tease people.. i.e: WebKit+V8 and a simplistic shell GUI.

No more Chrome news until they get their act together.

Thanks.
